The topic of soul ties can be very difficult to understand unless you are aware of two basic principles:
- The Rightful Order of Creation
- We are Like God
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:21 AKJV)
You have a young child who is prone to wandering. There is a highway on a hill nearby. You know that your child could be killed if they wander onto that road. You know the danger, but your child does not. In an attempt to keep your child from dying, you place barbed wire and other painful obstacles between your child and the road. The closer your child gets to the road, the more painful the obstacles. Some determined children will push through painful obstacles, but it is the grace and mercy of God that keeps putting more painful things between eternal death and His children.We also warned her not to focus on her son, but to focus on God. He should ALWAYS be our main focus. If our kids are the center of our world, we have placed them above God and they have become an idol to us. We need to release them to God. Despite this warning and other reassurances, Jalo was not comforted at the meeting. Afterward she wrote us:
Thank you for today’s teaching, it had me looking at my perspective on being under grace and mercy. After the meeting I had to converse with Abba (God as Daddy or Pappa). After acknowledging my mistake, I had a vision in a Secret Place visit: a young man (my son at a much younger age) was walking together with Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) along the shores. His left hand was around Yeshua’s waist and Yeshua’s right hand over his shoulder. Joy has returned in my heart. It is well!A few days later, the Lord impressed upon Jalo that she bring Quin in for a scheduled meeting at the Courts. Life-changing decisions for him would be made; Jalo wanted to make sure God would be involved. We set up an emergency visit so that Quin could come to this meeting.
That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God… (Ephesians 2:7-8)As we continue through eternity, we are proof of God’s great kindness because it is His gift, through grace, that we are in Heaven with Him. To let someone endure Hell, that is not kind or merciful. If you pray for a loved one for grace and mercy and their situation gets worse, it may be because they don’t yet know Jesus as Lord of their life. You must trust that God’s mercy will not take them from this Earth until they become part of His kingdom.
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you. (Isaiah 26:3)Even if we say we trust in God, how can we be sure that He is directing our path? When we have fully surrendered our will to God’s will, the Holy Spirit will bring peace that passes our understanding. It may not be in the form of a vision as it was with Jalo, but the Lord always shows up. Once you release them to God, peace will come.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Commit your way to the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass… (Psalms 37:5)When we are committed to the Lord and place our trust in Him, we are inviting Him to move into the situation and direct our path. I have seen this in visions in the Courts:
A petitioner we were escorting handed a glowing blue ball over to the Lord. This ball represented a problem she was struggling with. After a few seconds, changing her mind, she grabbed it back. This happened several times in the next few minutes. The Lord continually stood beside her, patiently waiting for her to return it to Him.Do you want your hands to dominate the lives of your children or husband, or do you want the Lord’s hands on them? To receive answers to prayers, we must:
“And the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend… (Exodus 33:11)Most people know that God spoke to Moses face to face. Did you know that this was God’s will for all His people, but because they had forgotten God’s ways, they were too afraid to do it:
